Sleep disorders specialists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and surgical and nonsurgical treatment of sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea and snoring.
Sleep disorders specialists are not recognized as a separate medical subspecialty but are usually pulmonologists or otolaryngologists who are board-certified through either the Board of Internal Medicine or the Board of Otolaryngology, which are both recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
